An explosion on a pachinko named Sandcastle. This event was reported on television.

The connecion of the seemingly unrelated explosion and the delivery was revealed to be related after a call on that smartphone mocked Kogorō and hints again on another bomb at a certain block in Haido City. The book has a riddle that is related to the case: on a bus station, five people are waiting. A bus with three passengers arrived. Two passengers get off the bus at the next stop while a passenger rode the bus. How many are the people on the bus when it arrived at its destination?

Kogorō then called Inspector Megure about the issue, and Kogorō, Ran and Conan went into the place. Immediately after they arrived, Inspector Megure asked the police to find the said bomb and called Inspector Takagi, showing a possible suspect: a bomber named Takuji Hirukawa. Then, Inspector Chiba, with the publisher named Hiroyuki Tomonaga, checked the book which was stolen and narrated what happened. The author of the book, Kenichi Imai tried to enter a book contest when a rumor about his half-brother, identified as Takuji, was posted to the internet causing him to withdraw the contest. After his death, Hiroyuki have tried to publish the book, however the print proof was retrieved by his half-brother, who attacked him to make the attempt successful.
